I have actually suffered to install IPython 0.11 on Ubuntu 10.04 64
bits due to the ZMQ dependency. But I will later give IPython 0.11 a try
on MeeGo Harmattan, thanks for the suggestion. But Maemo 4/5 has Python
2.5 and IPython 0.11 needs at least Python 2.6.

Thanks for pointing this possible solution.

Very interesting this in-browser notebook interface !
